With the Can sofa, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec seek to go beyond the creation of a practical, elegant and comfortable design. The intention is to reinvigorate the whole idea of the sofa, from something inherently complicated to something simple, relaxed and accessible. The sofa comes flat-packed and can be easily assembled at home from three basic elements – frame, cover and cushions.
